Celebrate with Gingerbread at the Walt Disney World Resort

When Disney fans talk Gingerbread it's hard not to keep their focus on the Grand Floridian's extravagant 16 foot tall Gingerbread House that's set up in the lobby.

This annual showpiece created by the Food and Beverage Team takes three days to build and houses a specialty gift shop that sells fresh baked items created with the same Austrian Gingerbread that the little store is made out of. The sweet smelling gingerbread shop not only acts as a showpiece of creative talent, but as a showplace for the Disney food artists to share decorating tips and tricks with you. Check out this great video from Disney Food Blog featuring the Grand Floridian's display.

This magnificent display only scratches the surface of all the Gingerbread goodies that you can find at Walt Disney World. You can find gingerbread goodies to take home for sale in many of the gift shops, and yummy holiday specials featuring gingerbread at many of the Disney cafes.

Here are some of the fun holiday goodies we found dedicated to this sweet treat:

  • Gingerbread Cookies decorated with Mickey's smiling face.
  • Gingerbread Cookie Mix, to take home.
  • Gingerbread Man Holiday Antena Toppers.
  • Freshly Baked Gingerbread in Bakeries & Cafes.
  • Magnificent Displays at the Boardwalk, Beach Club, and Contemporary Resorts.
  • Santa's Bakeshop in Epcot's American Adventure Pavilion

I really liked the gingerbread display at the Boardwalk Inn last time we were there over the holidays. But then again, they are all so cool, who can pick just one?! I think we saw all the resort ones and loved them all :)
